This tour is conducted by Destination Tromsø. Combine a dogsledding-adventure with a guidet tour from Tromsø to the magical Ice Domes.
Our guide will pick you up outside the Magic Ice Bar, daily at 8.30AM (or 9.00AM). The scenic 90 to 115 minutes long drive will set the mood and bring you to the Arctic wilderness in Tamokdalen. The bus is marked "Ice Domes".
Dog sledding is a tradition of travel in the Arctic. Our dog sledding consist of a musher, a sled and Alaskan huskies. It´s an adventurous activity for your Arctic holiday in Tromsø. We love doing this and want to share the amazing feeling of leading a dog sled with happy and strong Alaskan huskies. From our kennel we slide into the snow-covered valley of Tamokdalen, between trees and over hills.
You don´t need any experience because our guides will give you all the equipment you need, teach you how to use the sled and then into the wild we go. You will drive in pairs and rotate halfway along the track. We will pick you up with our bus in Tromsø city and drive you back after the tour.
For all departures, pick-up is outside Magic Ice Bar in Tromsø. Please meet up 10 min before your departure. Our driver and bus will meet you in front of the hotel.
TROMSØ ICE DOMES:
Set among high mountains in the beautiful Tamok Valley, Tromsø Ice Domes is built every year as the Polar Night approaches. The snow and ice art reflects the unique bond between man and nature in a unique and breath-taking manner. The ice bar, our ice cinema, the ice bedrooms and ice restaurant have themes ranging from local Sami culture to the northern lights conveyed through beautiful colored lighting and wonderful ice sculptures. At the Ice Domes you will join a guided tour and learn about the construction process of an ice hotel and the impact the snow has for the survival of our arctic animals. There will be time to walk around freely and ask questions to the experienced guide. A non-alcoholic ice shot at the stunning ice bar is complementary. You will be able to purchase other drinks, which will be served in the ice restaurant or ice bar.
We also have four baby reindeer located at the Tromsø Ice Domes. During the day, you will have a chance to greet our reindeer, take photos, and feed them. Please note that we cannot allow you to walk inside the reindeer fence for safety to you and the animals. Touching/Petting the reindeer is also not permitted as reindeer are wild animals. Reindeer calves are more calm and relaxed than adult reindeer so this provides safety for the animals and guests.
